It was appropriate that for the last Twitter-Wood update of 2010, the feed included plenty of examples of what made the year great. "Black Swan" reactions continued to appear, while Michael Ian Black and Brody Stevens wished horrible fates upon people for the new year and Seth MacFarlane proposed a New Year's resolution for anyone who hasn't picked one yet.
Ice-t sounded off with his feelings about the police, as he apparently got pulled over this week. His rant, as well as Jeremy Piven's fear of saunas and Anna Kendrick's love for the show "Misfits" can be found down below.

Adding laughter is one of the best things an actor can do to take a performance from safe to spectacular. Whether in a comedy or a drama, great actors sprinkle laughter throughout their performances—not necessarily guffaws (although they're wonderful too), but social laughs masking nervousness, laughs to release tension, or laughs that come from an eagerness to please, for instance. Laughter is the social grease of human beings. Watch how often people around you laugh. You will be amazed how seldom we laugh because something is funny. The comedian Bob Newhart said, "Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it, and then move on."Make Unexpected ChoicesI called my book "How to Make Your Audience Fall in Love With You" because every actor needs to make appealing choices. Well, there is nothing more appealing than humor. Whether the laughs arise from »
Acclaimed comics creator, writer and all around great guy, Stan “The Man” Lee, who co-created the likes of Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men and many more, is 88 years young today. At 88, the man has not slowed down one bit either.

Javier Bardem was quite the sprited cheerleader alongside his very pregnant wife Penelope Cruz at last night's Christmas Lakers game in La. Javier and Penelope stayed in California for the holiday due to the airport trouble in Europe, and it looks like they had a blast despite the team's tough loss. The happy couple were even featured on the kiss cam and happily obliged with Pda for the crowd! The Staples center was packed with celebrities including Cameron Diaz, who was back from her bikini-filled vacation in Mexico with Alex Rodriguez in time to spend the weekend at home. She had Guy Oseary instead of her romantic getaway partner ARod as her courtside date. Jeremy Piven and Emmanuelle Chriqui had a mini Entourage reunion, while Kanye West chatted with Kris Jenner.

And it’s no shock with Disney’s past mega successes of Pirates Of The Caribbean and National Treasure, Disney are really going all out with their franchises and Tron: Legacy being no exception with toys, games, theme park rides, comics and now the much anticipated cartoon; Tron: Uprising.
The series, to air Summer 2012 on Disney Xd, fits between the first Tron and the new installment, Legacy where Clu (evil Jeff Bridges program) takes over the Grid. Below is an outline from Adam Horowitz, the Tron: Legacy co-screenwriter in an interview on Box Office Magazine;
This animated show will take place from when Flynn is in a safe house. It’s from when Clu takes over the grid to before when Sam comes in. So if you were »

The soldiers of the United States Marine Corp who are stationed at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan are getting a incredible holiday treat this week. Since they’re can’t get home for holidays, actor Mark Wahlberg and his good friend Eric Weinstein — the real-life inspiration for “E” on HBO’s Entourage – decided to travel overseas to share a special present with them: a screening of Mark’s new dramatic film, The Fighter!
News legend and HollywoodLife.com Bff, FOX5’s Good Day New York co-host Rosanna Scotto, shared these amazing photos of Mark and Eric’s trip to Afghanistan – thank you, Rosanna, for conveying these to us and letting us help tell this inspiring story! We also salute Mark and Eric »
If you love director Adam McKay and Will Ferrell's goofball collaborations (the best being Anchorman), then you can't go wrong with The Other Guys (2010). The novel ingredient this time out is action, and not just slap-stick but real car chase and bullet whizzing "action." Sam Jackson and Dwayne Johnson open as rock-star cops fighting crime with hard edged style (including a car driven through a passenger filled bus as Sam delivers his trademark tongue in cheek lines -"did someone call 9-1-holy shit!"- only to shoot out the other side with guns blazing to nab offending perps), all to the devotion of New York residents ignoring millions in property damage as long as their city is kept safe by beloved hometown celebrities.
This story is really about its namesake, "The Other Guys," the lowly souls who don't get the spotlight or break big criminal investigations... until now. »
This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Salt Salt barrels forward at a relentless pace, and stops only for the most perfunctory of emotional beats. You know they're emotional beats because somber music plays in the background while characters gaze longingly at each other. 30 seconds of that, and it's back to more running, car hopping and violently-inflicted bodily injury. None of the action is especially impressive or inspired, but what it lacks in polish it makes up for in sheer volume. The mystery of Evelyn Salt is meant to keep the audience on their toes as the action unfolds, but it's all so ludicrous and predictable; if there is a compelling mystery at the core of Salt, it's learning just how much casual ass-kickery »

Greed, in all of its forms, has marked the upward surge of mankind.
Two movies came around in 1987 to skewer the era’s avarice from two drastically different angles: the unfailingly quotable, rollicking good-time satire of Robocop and the unfortunately quotable, cheerless cautionary finger-wagging of Wall Street. In the first, greed is punished by a sad cyborg blowing the greedy, suited villain out a window while in the second, a surreptitious recording peters to an ambiguous ending where the bad guy is a non-participant.
In my never-ending quest to watch everything I’m “supposed” to see, I sometimes need a little push; or more accurately, an excuse. Since I’d never seen Wall Street, I jumped at the chance to screen its seemingly unnecessary sequel, the oft-delayed Money Never Sleeps, which I now know is cleverly named after a throwaway line from the original.
Aside from a backstory I figured was necessary to appreciate Money, »

Anthony H. Thomas , plays a boxer defeated by Mark Wahlberg 's character in the new film "The Fighter," but Thomas says it's not a far cry from their real-life, off-screen sparring matches in which Wahlberg can knock him down! "Mark is a pretty tough competitor actually, so sometimes when we're fighting we really go head-to-head, toe-to-toe," Thomas, who used to be Wahlberg's personal assistant, tells TooFab."We actually did four rounds today, and unfortunately I wasn't training enough and I took a couple of strong body shots!" Adds Thomas, a native of Roxbury, Mass., "Mark actually has about 400 pounds pounds of pressure in his left hand, if he connects. I'm prettry sure anybody would fall. He's a really strong guy, very strong guy." As Wahlberg's former assistant, Thomas admits he lived a life similar to that on the HBO show "Entourage," which is executive produced by Wahlberg, but that there's »

If a single recent event can help to sum up what’s happened to television in 2010, at least on a symbolic level, it’s this one: Charles Eglee, one of the writer-producers who had worked on AMC’s wildly popular The Walking Dead before either leaving or getting sacked by showrunner Frank Darabont (depending on who you ask), was hired by FX to oversee a small-screen adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis’ comic Powers. The announcement came only a few days after FX president John Landgraf announced that the network had to cancel Terriers, their critically adored hourlong dramedy about lower-middle class amateur PIs working and living in Ocean Beach, San Diego. In an unusual move, Landgraf actually held a conference call to discuss the cancellation later that day – at least in part to help stem accusations that the channel’s dog-themed advertising helped to doom the show, which never exceeded »

Jeff Bridges' wife wants him to trim his beard. The 61-year-old actor, who sports facial hair in his new Western movie "True Grit" and was unshaven for his Oscar-winning role as an alcoholic country musician in "Crazy Heart", intends to keep his beard, but his spouse Susan thinks it needs to be kept in check.
When asked if he intended to keep his facial fuzz, Jeff said, "Yeah. My wife likes it." To which she replied, "I like the beard more when it's trimmed, like a goatee."
The couple have been married for 33 years and Susan believes their relationship has stood the test of time because the Hollywood star always makes time for her and their three grown-up daughters, Isabelle, Jessica, and Hayley. She added in an interview with New York Post columnist Cindy Adams, "We've been together a very long time. We're married 33 years and were together before that. »
Bob & Harvey Weinstein’s desperation to relive former glories continue. The struggling production company are banking on the return of the Scream and Spy Kids franchises next year to get them out of a financial hole, and now comes the surprising announcement of a deal with Miramax, the company they founded, left & recently lost a battle to re-purchase, to develop sequels to three of their highest profile hits.
Announced today in a press release are sequels to Bad Santa (which they have been trying to make for a while), the 1998 poker drama Rounders and most bizarrely of all, the Oscar winning Shakespeare in Love. What?
Let’s look at them one at a time…
Bad Santa 2 is probably the least surprising. Billy Bob Thornton has wanted to reprise his much loved drunken & offensive lout for years and recently mentioned to Collider that sequel talk had been ramping up again. Bad Santa »

Actor Kevin Dillon was left red-faced at a California pet store earlier this month after forgetting to take his wallet when he headed out on a shopping spree.
The Entourage star was buying dog food at Hows Market in Malibu but realised he had left his money at home when he got to the cash register.
A kind-hearted customer offered to pick up his $8 (£5.30) bill but Dillon refused and promised to return with the change the following day, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
A source tells the publication, "Kevin scribbled an Iou on a piece of paper, thanked them and walked out with his Purina (pet food)."
Dillon's representative says the star told friends, "If I don't leave here with some dog food, my dogs would eat me!" »
This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Exit Through The Gift Shop Describing the engrossing, frequently hilarious Banksy-directed Exit Through the Gift Shop as one of the best story-driven documentaries I've ever seen would almost certainly be misleading, as its veracity has been a point of contention since its Sundance premiere. To delve into the topic further would require detailing plot details that I'd be remiss to give away, so I'll just say this: The strength of the film is that whether or not it's authentic doesn't matter. The ultimate take-away from the picture comes from a place of complete truth, and that truth only resonates in the way that it does because the story was told in this form. Not only does »

If the 25-degree temperatures, dirt-brown carpet (in lieu of a red one) and lack of Golden Globes nominations dampened spirits at Tuesday night's "True Grit" premiere at New York's famed Ziegfeld Theatre, it sure didn't show.
Taking a lesson from the film's title, stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Barry Pepper and Hailee Steinfeld — as well as a bevy of celebrities, including "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier, musician John Legend and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani — showed true grit in braving the frigid temps to walk the unconventionally colored carpet. (Giuliani was greeted by chants of "Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!")
